Installed some Metalcloak High Clearance Rear Shock Mounts to get me a ton more clearance in the rear!

Great looking rig.
Like the shock relocation kit.
Since the bottom of the shock has been moved up, is there still up travel available in the shock when the axles are in the full up position and hard on the bump stops?
Are you going to fab up some skids for the bottom portion of the control arm mounts?

I bought a set of 5 JK Rubicon Hard Rock wheels and mounted some used 37/12.5/R17 BFGoodrich KM2s on them...the tires fit perfectly with no rubbing! So excited to have these

So these are 37's on your 2" spacer lift, if I read that correctly?

Thanks man! Yes there is actually a inch or 2 when you are at hard bumpstop which is great...gives me a bit more droop that I was missing before...I do not think I will be needing skids since really the only thing to hit is the control arm head itself I cut them pretty flush...I slid one over a large rock last trip we took and it slid easily and didn't hurt anything
